March 28, 2012


Allen Fieldhouse will open on Saturday evening to allow basketball fans to watch Kansas University’s Final Four game on the fieldhouse’s giant video board.

The Kansas University Alumni Association sent a message to its members Wednesday announcing the fieldhouse will open at 6 p.m. for fans to watch KU’s game against the Ohio State Buckeyes in New Orleans.

A spokeswoman for the alumni association said there will be no admission fee to enter the fieldhouse, and seating will be on a first-come, first-serve basis.

The association also announced the location of a pre-game pep rally it will host in New Orleans. The pep rally will run from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday at the Celestin Ballroom at the Hyatt Regency in New Orleans. Admission is $10, and tickets can be purchased at the KU team hotel, which is the JW Marriott, 614 Canal St. in New Orleans. Tickets also can be purchased at Walk-On’s, 1009 Poydras Street in New Orleans, which will serve as the “official bar of the KU Alumni Association” during the Final Four.
